look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

snifter. 2010 batch.

a - pours a deep, hazy copper color, nearly opaque. forms a finger of tan head that calms to a thin film. not much for lacing, but there are a few small spots.

s - tons of dried fruits - raisin, prune, cherry, notes of cocoa powder and grassy hops.

t - toffee malt base with an overpowering pine resin hop character. not getting much fruit at all, but has plenty of astringent alcohol taste.

m - full bodied with medium carbonation and a significant alcohol warming.

o - definitely a slow sipper and not very enjoyable. i seem to remember this being better when it was fresh. at a little over a year old, it's not doing too well. will look elsewhere for barleywines from now on.
